Author:  Corin

Lisa and Libby started their Big Munro round Monday 3rd of July, 2017 and are now about to start the 3rd week on their adventure!

So here’s an update on how week 2 went…

“We had a rest day in Fort William on Tuesday to do some more route planning and to reload on calories. On Weds we picked up 4 more Munros in Glen Coe on a beautiful day, we had a great view from the top.

We cycled down Glen Etive on Wednesday evening which was a lovely ride. Thursday and Friday we did a 2 day run with an overnight wild camp to pick up 9 Munros. The weather was threatening but fortunately most of the rain fell overnight on Thursday and we stayed relatively dry.

Julie, Libby’s Mum getting creative with shoe drying while on route to meet the girls.

No such luck on Saturday where it chucked it down all day, it was tempting to call another rest day but we put full waterproofs on and bagged another 5 Munros. We were fortunate to find a campsite with a much needed drying room for the Saturday night.

On Sunday we cycled west and picked up 4 Munros, including our 50th Munro – Ben Cruachan. A successful, but pretty wet week!”

Ben Cruachan is Munro number 50! Here they are on the cloudy summit.
